§ MR. BOLAND (Kerry, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that negotiations for the sale of the Drummond Estate, near Beaufort, county Kerry, have been completed, and that the sale is to be carried out through the Congested Districts Board; can ha state in what way the tenants can benefit from Section 44 of the Land Act of 1903; and whether the Board will give 603 a reduction of 10 per cent, when effecting the sale, or will improve the holdings to that extent, or will give it in the form of a reduction to the tenants on the purchase instalments.
§ MR. WALTER LONG
Neither the Board nor the Estates Commissioners have any information as to this estate. The section quoted applies to purchases of congested estates by the Estates Commissioners.
